A very unique, versatile actor with a brilliant voice. He will be a very sad loss to movies and the world in general I think.
 Yet another great in as many weeks.

One of his films not often mentioned is 'Bottle Shock' where he plays an English wine seller in Paris who is trying to educate the French that there are better wines 'out there'.
 It is based on a character well known in the wine industry who I have met several times and his characterization is excellent.
Sometimes called 'The judgement of Paris', in 1972.
If you have very very deep pockets try 'The Vinyard' hotel near Newbury Berks.  You can partake of a similar wine challenge to the above.

I loved his voice. His version of 'Marvin the Paranoid Android' from Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy was simply brilliant. The brain the size of a planet and you've got me opening doors! Oh look another of those smug self satisfying doors!
Truly a sad week.
